Paul McCartney’s On The Run tour has added second shows in Montreal and Chicago. The newly announced dates are July 27 at the Bell Centre in Montreal and August 1 at Chicago’s Wrigley Field.
According to McCartney’s publicist. tickets for the additional shows are on sale now: Chicago tickets can be purchased at Tickets.com and via 1-800-THE-CUBS, while Montreal tickets are available at the Bell Centre Box Office, by phone at (514) 790-2525 or 1 877 668-8269, or online www.evenko.ca
The new shows bring Paul McCartney’s On The Run tour to a tally of eight North American dates, kicking off July 15 and 16 with McCartney’s first ever shows at Yankee Stadium in New York City, and proceeding through July 24 at Comerica Park in Detroit, July 26 and 27 at Montreal’s Bell Centre, July 31 and August 1 at Wrigley Field in Chicago, and August 4 at the Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati.
Each and every one of this summer’s On The Run dates can safely be predicted to feature nearly three hours of the world’s most familiar music, with hits, deep cuts and surprises spanning McCartney’s unrivaled catalogue of Beatles, Wings, solo and Fireman classics.
As on his Live 2009 tour and Up and Coming’s 2010 run and every Paul McCartney tour since 2002, Paul will be backed by the combo the LAS VEGAS SUN called “his best band since, well, the Beatles”: Paul “Wix” Wickens (keyboards, guitar, percussion, harmonica, backing vocals), Rusty Anderson (guitar, backing vocals), Abe Laboriel Jr. (drums, backing vocals) and Brian Ray (guitar, bass, backing vocals).
McCartney kicked off his 2011 live agenda last month with his first ever show in Peru, his first Chilean gig since 1993, and two blockbuster shows at Rio de Janeiro’s Estadio Olimpico Joao Havelange, which also resulted in the first ever concert to be broadcast live on the internet throughout Latin America–allowing over 1.5 million fans who were unable to snap up one of the 100,000 tickets to share in the magic.
